MASTER’S learn to row level 2

 

 

PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

This class is designed for the adult rower who has had some rowing experience [or who has completed level 1], and who would like to deepen their skills through group lessons and coaching. The interest can be in recreational and competitive rowing.

Level 2 Rowers  can expect to work on their technique, body position, and blade work in single sex and/or mixed pairs or quads to enhance their skills. Opportunity to learn sweep rowing and the technique, body position, and blade work required for single oar rowing will take place as interest and the summer progresses. 

The ultimate goal for Masters is to get out on the water, have fun, and create a lifelong passion for the sport of rowing with safety and community at the heart of it all. 

Summer of 2019 schedule offers classes every Tuesday and Thursday evenings. Initially, we will be offering 12 openings in each class. We row out of Barrett’s Cove on Megunticook Lake in Camden. Use the scheduling application below to sign up and purchases classes.

To accommodate adult’s schedules, you may sign up for as many classes as you like.
